Quarter Square Love Affair

You may have noticed I've been making quilts using quarter square triangles. There was Happy Hour, a solution to my orange and yellow scrap bins overflowing. There was also this one, I'm still in need of a name for, using scraps from my gray and black scrap bins. Both quilts have tutorials if you are interested. But what started this love affair with the quarter square were these stars.
 That became this quilt, featuring Freedom by Sweetwater  for Moda.
 That you will find in this magazine.
I have one for a lucky reader. Leave a comment for a chance to win. I'll pick a winner next Friday.
